Weekend gardening @ Tampines Eco Park

Saturday, 23rd March was our 3rd round helping at the Tampines Eco park.  Yes, it is The Green Volunteers who do not mind getting our hands dirty and feet wet and yet in the morning when many people are still asleep.  This time, 13 staff from Deutsche Bank, Singapore and about 16 students from the NUS Raffles Hall planted 50 odd butterfly attracting plants.  The planting activity ended at about 1 pm where we head off for lunch after that.

We also have our youngest volunteer, Jia Le, 6, who loves to hang out under the sun in the garden and parks.  Thanks to his mum and dad who believe in bringing up children close with nature instead of spending time on computer games at home.

The picture above is Jia Le on the left was attended by a Nparks intern, Jen who placed different sizes of snails on his palm.  We wish that more parents who can also nurture their children like Jia  Le.

We will be having our next community volunteering programme at Kallang River @ Bishan - Ang Mo Kio Park in early May!  Nevertheless, we also have our regular weekend gardening at Pasir Park.  We will keep you posted on our blog.
